Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable designed to destroy fat cells in the area under the chin and provide a sleeker, slimmer profile. Its active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, occurs naturally within the body and helps to break down and absorb the fat you consume in your diet. When deoxycholic acid is injected into the treatment area just under the chin, it starts breaking down fat cells and reducing the appearance of what many refer to as a “double chin”.
Unlike many treatments that are temporary and must be repeated every few months to maintain results, Kybella is a permanent treatment. Once it destroys the fat cells in the treatment area, they cannot regrow there. It is important to note that most clients require anywhere from three to six Kybella treatment sessions in order to achieve the desired results.
Side effects include some redness at the injection site, swelling, mild bruising, and slight numbness under the chin. Severe side effects are rare, but they are possible.
